The third group of Mobbies nominees

mobbiesVoting in the Mobbies started on Tuesday and runs through November 12. The competition to determine Maryland's best bloggers includes a "Foodie" category with 39  nominees.

Here is the third group of Mobbies nominees in the "Foodie" category. We' re taking them 5 at a time, in alphabetical order. Here is the first group from Wednesday and the second batch from yesterday.

The bloggers themselves are welcome to dilate upon their blogging philosophy and otherwise promote themselves.


For this series of posts I am only accepting positive (or neutral comments.) If there is an issue or concern you have about a particular blog you'd like to express, please email me at:



Binny Cooks -- the blogger here, who cooks in a "farm-to-table" restaurant in Baltimore, describes Binny Cooks as "a haven for amateur food lovers, whose budgets are thin, whose kitchens are teensy-tiny, and who may or may not exclusively record episodes of Barefoot Contessa (or own them on DVD)."

Biscuits and Such -- The blogger here, Elena Brent Rosemond-Hoerr, says Biscuits and Such "is a Southern food blog based out of a tiny apartment in Baltimore, MD." Recent posts was on fried turkey and braised short ribs over creamy grits.

Black Coffee and a Donut -- The bloggers on this recently revamped site say they are "two sisters who love to cook, eat, and entertain, and we thought we'd try blogging about it. We wanted to share our experiences with food, in Baltimore and beyond, with our friends and family and any strangers online who happen to love black coffee and donut."

Bon Appetit Hon -- A blog about cooking and more. The blogger says, "Welcome to my kitchen in Smalltimore. Pull up a chair, make yourself at home, and Bon Appetit Hon." Recent posts have celebrated peach ice cream and coconut macaroons.

Coconut & Lime -- Original recipes by cookbook author Rachel Rappaport. Recent posts were on fried pickle chips with zippy feta dressing and roated pork with Asian pears.
